Daily Debate results: Was Conor McGregor’s plea deal a joke? Most fans think so

Conor McGregor reached a plea deal to avoid jail time, and most fight fans think it was a bit of a joke.

On Thursday the former UFC two-division champ and MMA megastar agreed to a plea deal that will keep him out of jail – and free to travel for fights. In other words, “Notorious” is back.

With McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) receiving the legal equivalent of a slap on the wrist following his April attack on a bus full of fighters, MMA industry notables understandably had some jokes.

McGregor’s punishment for the rampage that forced UFC vets Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg off the UFC 223 card when they were hit by shards of glass? Five days of community service, one to three days of anger-management classes, and restitution for the damage to the bus.

So what did fight fans think of the punishment? More than half voted that it was too fight while 42 percent said it was fitting.

Here are the results (via Twitter):
